Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: Cromwell is a wonderful author ! I think if you enjoy Cromwell, you might enjoy the remarkable Hilary Mantel (twice winner of the Man Booker prize for fiction) [^].

She has just released the final novel of her trilogy on Thomas Cromwell. There is a dimension in her use of language ... sentences sparkling with nuances of underlying sound lurking in great rhythmic seas of images ... that, imho, reaches the heights attained by Dickens. Her gift for dialogue is astounding.

Her first Booker Prize was for "Wolf Hall," which was made into a supremely satisfying BBC mini-series with the great actors Mark Rylance (Cromwell), Damien Lewis (Henry VIII), Claire Foy (Anne Boleyn), heading an all-star cast

cheers, Bill
